NON-SURGICAL BROW LIFT TREATMENT BY DR. ZUCKERMAN IN NEW YORK CITY


Dr. Zuckerman can inject Botox® in particular positions around the eye to raise the brow laterally and give the patient a refreshed, rejuvenated look. The Orbicularis oculi muscle runs in an oval in concentric circles around each of the eyes; it is the muscle that allows you to squint. Due to the shape, some of the muscle fibers are vertical and some are horizontal. If you temporarily paralyze, using Botox, only the vertical muscle fibers on the lateral side of the eye, the brow will pull upward.

Non-Surgical Brow Lift Recovery, Difficulty, & Risks

See below for an estimate of how long your treatment result may last, recovery time if any, cost range, and more.

Downtime / Recovery

This treatment involves little to no downtime, and patients often return to work immediately after treatment. There may be slight bleeding or redness at the injection sites, but these will resolve within a few hours.

Required Level of Skill

Medium: Dr. Zuckerman is a board-certified plastic surgeon and an expert injector. He evaluates the patient’s anatomy around the eye similarly to how he would do for a facelift or for upper or lower eyelid surgery. See below for a few risks due to the proximity of this treatment to the eye. The shape of the brows is responsible for a significant percentage of our perception of facial character, so Dr. Zuckerman is careful to make subtle changes.

Level of Discomfort

None to low: this treatment is performed with an extremely thin gauge needle. Dr. Zuckerman offers a topical anesthetic (numbing cream) as well before treatment if you would like and an ice pack afterwards.

Associated Risks

Botox® injections are overhwelmingly safe and widespread. Approved by the FDA in 2002, Botox® Cosmetic has been in use for over fifteen years. In this particular treatment,complications, such as having one brow higher than the other or even a sagging upper eyelid, are possible with the incorrect placement or amount of Botox® given the proximity of this treatment to the eyes. Visit Dr. Zuckerman, a board-certified plastic surgeon and expert injector, for this treatment.



Frequently Asked Questions About Non-Surgical Brow Lift


• How many units of Botox do I need for a non-surgical brow lift treatment?
Dr. Zuckerman will recommend a number of units to you for this treatment based on your age, the extent to which you tend to squint, and the amount of sagging in your brows laterally. Generally speaking, this area receives somewhere in the range of 6 to 12 units. For first or second-time patients, Dr. Zuckerman often recommends that you make a follow-up appointment 8 to 14 days after treatment. He can then perform a touch-up treatment and record exactly how many units optimally suits you.
